Barrel Springs Beta?

Is the shoshone power plant still down and putting all the water through barrel springs? Any info on what barrel is like at ~1000cfs at dotsero? Recommended flows on eddyflower show 1800 as the min, but I assume that this would be around 800 in the riverbed if the shoshone plant takes the standard 1000cfs or so. Is it running? Fun at the current level?

drove through it a few days ago. Still water in it. I would check for ice bridges as there were a few this winter. Because of the realease, its would be equivelent to the water flow of about 1800. Plenty of water when I look down and isn't super pushy (as pushy as it can be). Id scout, and keep in mind the cold water.... plus its in the shade a lot so might want to hit it up earlier than later....
Hope this helps

It would be fun at the current level. Plenty of water to run all of it but not currnetly at the higher--pushier flows.
